氷ノ山MTBツーリングキャンプ（後編） MTB Camp → Hyo-no-Sen (part 3)
From here I returned home and unloaded my car. Even though the next day Monday was a national holiday, I worked from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. My foot gradually got sorer and walking became painful. Later in the night I couldn't walk anymore due to the intense pain if I put pressure on my foot. I therefore moved around on my backside. The next morning I woke up wet from sweat due to a fever and couldn't stand (because of the pain). It became obvious that I wouldn't be able to work this day so I took the day off. I never imagined 'buyo' bites would be this severe. After not being able to walk, I realize how important it is to look after your feet. I wish I had listened to ARA's advice from the beginning. Anyway, I was able hobble around in the afternoon so I went to the doctor's using my umbrella as a walking stick.
The doctor gave me 2 x-rays, a muscle injection, an intravenous injection, cooled my foot down for 10 minutes etc. He also gave me 6 kinds of medicine. Not sure if the x-rays were necessary (I think he was checking to see if the inflammation had spread to the bone) but I'm always suspicious of doctors doing lots of tests to get more revenue. Anyway, I didn't really care. I just wanted to walk freely again. The next morning I woke up and could walk no problem. Yay!
